Fortinet Unified Threat Management (UTM) also known as Next Generation Firewall (NGF) is the evolution of traditional firewalls into an all-inclusive security product or appliance to perform multiple security functions.
Whether you need to deploy a High Performance Data Center Firewall, an Enterprise Next Generation Firewall or a smaller UTM device for your Distributed Enterprise site or small business, there is a FortiGate physical or virtual appliance to fit your unique Network Security requirements.
Advantages of Fortinet Performance
Fortinet purpose-built hardware and software provide industry-leading performance for the most demanding networking environments. Our integrated architecture provides extremely high throughput and exceptionally low latency, minimizing packet processing while accurately scanning the data for threats. Custom FortiASIC™ processors deliver content inspection at multi-Gigabit speeds.
Fortinet delivers a robust set of signature-based, heuristic, and advanced security technologies on top of a core high speed firewall and VPN foundation. These include intrusion prevention, application control, anti-malware, anti-spam, web filtering and more.
Fortinet consolidates different network and security functions into a single appliance. This provides a more cost effective deployment, simplified operations and integrated security system.
Your customers can easily enforce policies for all of the different wired and wireless devices, kiosks, systems, and terminals in their network from a “single pane of glass” console by connecting those devices to the FortiGate UTM. Regardless of whether they’re using only a few ports on a compact FortiGate device or dozens of ports on a high port density FortiGate model to consolidate and simplify their network, FortiGate provides the visibility and centralized management they need.
All-in-one Access and Connectivity
Fortinet’s Connected UTM solution also provides the networking technologies your customers need to simplify their complex networks. Every FortiGate and FortiWiFi model offers a built-in Ethernet switch with the highest number of ports in their class. These switched ports enable date segmentation for regulatory compliance or best practices. However, if your customers need more connectivity you can also expand their network with FortiSwitch Ethernet switches.
